Jodie Foster Escapes Teen Attack Charge

September 15, 2010 Jodie Foster

Jodie Foster has been cleared of the assault charge filed by the father of an unnamed underage boy who claimed "The Accused" star attacked his son at a mall. The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office has "declined" to prosecute the 47-year-old actress due to lack of evidence.

The father of the boy filed a police report over the incident that allegedly happened on May 29. Foster apparently "pushed and shoved" his son after the teenager tried to take photos of the actress and her two children as they were leaving an L.A. mall.

According to the suit, Foster "followed [the victim], poked him on his chest, [and] grabbed [the victim] by his left arm causing visible injury."

Foster denied that the boy was just a fan, claiming that he was "a professional paparazzo" who was carrying a "large camera bag and a 1000mm telephoto lens." He also apparently "tailed the actress and her young sons from the movie theater to valet parking."

However, after the LAPD failed to get an official statement from the actress after moer than three months of investigation, it handed the case over to the D.A.'s office, which has since dropped the case, RadarOnline.com reports.
